The Heart Forger (The Bone Witch #2)

I’m finding it really hard to write this review, because although I really enjoyed The Heart Forger, I can’t tell you specifically why. I liked that there was heaps of action on the present tense this time around, as opposed to just dropping titbits about the past tense story to keep our interest. I liked […]

Culling the TBR Pile 16

Give the Dark My Love

I was super excited to read a book about a magical healer facing a plague – even if they call alchemy ‘science’ in this book, it’s totally magic – and this one definitely delivered. It’s about a girl called Nedra (narrated beautifully by Mhairi Morrison with a lovely soft Scottish accent) from a small northern […]

The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks

I am officially giving up after three months having read nearly 200 pages. There is just so much damn dialogue about the most banal uninteresting things. There is absolutely zero chemistry between anyone. Everyone is so one dimensional and I have no idea how anyone found them interesting enough to pursue a relationship, let alone […]

The Enchanted Sonata by Heather Dixon Wallwork

Heather Dixon Wallwork is one of my absolute favourite authors of all time. She wrote Entwined, a 12 Dancing Princesses retelling which I have never reviewed here on the blog because the book is just too precious and the review would basically consist of my screaming for ten minutes. She also wrote Illusionarium, which was […]

Why I Don’t Read ‘Boy Books’

I often choose to read (and especially buy) female-led books by female authors, so I thought I’d delve a bit more into this since although it’s not a secret, I haven’t really talked about it and my choices as a reader, consumer, and blogger. There are lots of reasons why I don’t really read male […]
